VOORHEES, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey's attorney general says he's looking into who ordered a state trooper to photograph protesters at Gov. Chris Christie's town hall meetings.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman told The Associated Press he ordered the activity be stopped soon after he heard about it. He says he's still investigating how it came to happen.

Hoffman says he, the state police superintendent and the governor's office all learned about it Tuesday night after there were reports of a man who identified himself as a trooper photographing protesters at an event.

Hoffman says the man was indeed a trooper.

A spokesman for the governor says Christie was unaware his critics were being photographed.
